Scale Method

Manufacturing is only one part of what it takes to develop a successful consumer product. In order to interface with retailers and distributors around the world, you will need to have a dedicated team to help you scale. Similar to our build method, we use a well tested process that combines vetted resource partners, industry experts, and our Shanghai, Hangzhou and Shenzhen based hubs.

Operations

Managing operations in China is essential to growing your business. We have
standardized this process and can manage all aspects of your day-to-day operations. P88 will assign you an experienced merchandiser, located at one of our hubs, to handle everything from order fulfillment and tracking, to inventory management, testing and on-going product maintenance. Our goal is to provide an efficient and low cost method that takes care of your operations, and allows you to get back to focusing on your core strengths.

Product Extensions

Growth requires frequent product updates and line extensions. By leveraging our team of experts and vetted factories, you can greatly accelerate your product development and keep ahead of the competition. Since we are diversified, you will be able to leverage our product knowledge base and manufacturing capabilities across multiple categories. We have also developed a strategic partnership with Red Clay, a community of top-notch freelance designers that specializes in industrial, packaging, and graphic design. Together with P88, they give you all the tools you need to get product iterations to market quickly.

Sales Channel Development

Through our retail partners and distributors, we can assist in selling your products. Working with Chain stores in North America and Europe can be difficult. Moreover, many of them are resistant to purchasing from single item vendors. We have years of experience developing programs for Target, Wal-Mart, Sears, Home Depot, Kohls, JC Penney, Bed Bath & Beyond, Best Buy, Carrefour, Aldi, B&Q, Kingfisher, Brookstone, Bunnings, Woolworths, Radio Shack, Mapland, and more. Working with buyers can be difficult. If you’re unfamiliar with this part of the process, we’re happy to do it for you on a limited or long-term basis.

Purchase Order Financing

Managing cash flow is always a problem as you scale. We are working with several
partners to help bring you solutions during this growth stage. Currently, purchase order financing is available for orders that are fulfilled through our factory network and distribution system. We are also working with our investment community
to offer growth capital in exchange for equity.

Freight & Logistics Support

As part of our service, we’ve partnered with a third party logistics company (3PL).
With offices and warehouses in South San Francisco, we offer warehousing, fulfillment, transportation, distribution, and customs consulting. We can bring the product from the factory floor to your location and streamline the entire process for you.

Chinese Market

Selling products in China can be difficult. We can help you localize your product
and message to fit the Chinese consumer market. We have partnerships with distributors, on-line shops, and retail outlets throughout China. Why give up one of the world’s largest markets? We’ll help you protect your idea and get it on shelves quickly.
